Ssl errors on puppet client-

Hi,

Fresh install of Foreman 2.0, newly built Centos7 workstations:

If I run puppet agent -t on the client I get the below, also not seeing reports for this client within Foreman

Thanks.

[root@work-07-test ~]# puppet agent -t

Which versions of Puppet are you using? Probably Puppetserver 6 and Puppet-agent 3 which will not work out-of-the-box as Puppetserver 6 introduces an intermediate CA which Puppet-agent 3 is not capable to understand.

Hi Dirk,

That looks right
Puppetserver 6.11
Puppet-agent 3.6.2

How do I resolve that?
